In Swedish the word Skargardskryssare means cruising boat for shallow water. It's a racing class born in Sweden in 1908 with settlement about restriction of sail area. In practice, while the United States and southern Europe had adopted the metric system of the International Rule limiting the length of the hull, in Scandinavia it was born the class of square feet referred to the sail area. This design rule favored robust long and narrow boats that can go upwind effectively against headwinds. Classes of 30 and 40 square meters were declared Olympic classes in the 1920 games. These boats met the favor of the great American designer Nat Herreshoff who organized races in the United States reserved for this class. In 1928 Herreshoff built a boat of the class 30 square meters. Another promoter of the class was Eric Lundberg, member of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club. 1200 class boats till today have been built, that sail regularly in the Baltic and in lakes in Switzerland and Germany.
